When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, her world changes. Fortunately, caring family, friends and colleagues can help her understand she is not alone.
That’s why we used our own experience with the disease that affects one of eight women to create the Breast Cancer Comfort and Care Basket. It’s filled with products that can help women focus on their health–and know how much you care.
We include the following healthy, soothing products to show you care:
“Health mix,” a gourmet snack mix with healthy nuts and dried fruits
Dried blueberries, high in antioxidants, high in tastiness
Earl Grey tea, soothing drink high in antioxidants
“Queasy Drops” to help sooth a nervous stomach and fight nausea
Jasmin and Rose all-natural bath wash for delicate skin
Pink ribbon pin to show support for “finding the cure”
Ceramic travel cup to take a favorite beverage and remember to stay hydrated
Handmade basket (pretty enough to reuse in the bathroom or bedroom)
Optional stress reduction CD (add at checkout)
When breast cancer is diagnosed, many women understand the importance of healthy eating. That’s why we avoid sugars and fats in our products, instead including the well-known antioxidants in tea, in dried blueberries. and nut/fruit mixes. And the attractive ceramic travel cup is convenient to take to doctor appointments and to help remember to stay hydrated.
Treatments can cause skin changes, so we include a gentle and mild, non-drying, paraben-free bath wash that is scented with relaxing natural essential oils. And since another side effect of treatments and stress is nausea, we include soothing “Queasy Drops.”
Finally, remember that just the fact of showing your concern and support is another kind of healing.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. But we donate a percentage of profits from each basket to the American Cancer Society’s “Reach for Recovery” breast cancer support program year round.
